    Time will tell if this is significant. It is, nonetheless, entertaining. The problem that the Saudis have here is that Qatar is actually more important to the U.S. as a military ally than they are.

    Which is a BIG reason Trump left the Saudis off his "Travel Ban" list. You don't want top piss off a good customer, after all...........
